My Earnings for April 2015

I am not one to publicise my salary but at the same time, have nothing to hide. The reason I would do this is to exhibit to you just how viable this Izumio and Super Lutein business is as compared to other forms of earning an income.

You could be a professional and start as a graduate and slowly work your way up the career ladder which is what I did and it took me 15 years of my working life to earn a monthly take home salary of RM25,000. That is a decent sum after deductions of EPF and taxes but heck, it came with extremely long hours and a lot of stress that I’m not even sure is worth it because look where it has gotten me? I have freaking heart disease. Years of lack of sleep has caused my cells to not have the chance to regenerate and repair. Everything within my body was slowly falling apart.

One could do a services business or a product business such as…..I don’t know…..sewing, juicing, writing, consultancy, design, construction, you name it; but how much time would you have to put in versus the amount of income you actually earn back? It takes years to build a business unless you are extremely lucky to boom with a highly in demand product that you could trade for profit or manufacture yourself. Think about the capital investment that goes into that. Do you think you could start a business for close to nothing? It normally takes a business 2-3 years to break even let alone become profitable. Go talk to the businessmen and ask them. Go see the books.

But with the Izumio and Super Lutein business, in just 6 months, my earnings for April 2015 alone was a cool RM6,000. And this figure will continue to grow each month. I have only worked this business for 6 months. How cool is that? I am just helping the community at my own pace and answering everyone’s questions about their health, nutrition and the best way to get better. To me, it is easy. But for most people, they say they cannot sell. It is just a mind set. If you tell yourself not to sell but just share with the world that these products exist and offer a real chance at improving their lives, is that so hard? Why is it that you can share with others your experience with a school, or the restaurant, or that new face cream from Estee Lauder, but get a mental block when you have to share about how Izumio and Super Lutein has helped you (or so many others in the world)?

I just don’t get it. This is a breeze to me. I do not expect anyone to buy Izumio and Super Lutein from me, yet people come to me to enquire about it, and I tell them the truth. It really isn’t difficult. And for my efforts, I get rewarded by the company. I am really enjoying this!!!

Of course once my earning becomes like my boss i.e. RM52,000 plus in a week (the company pays weekly), then I will start thinking twice about sharing my income. Heh. I do not want to be kidnapped *gasp*. But the reality of it is that it is so achievable. Anyone can do it as long as they want to. It gives you great health and it gives you financial freedom of which you could do so much to improve things in the world. Just sit down to think about it for a minute, please. You could really do so much.

Who would be interested in doing the Izumio and Super Lutein business?

1. Fresh Graduates (yes, really. We have some youngsters who have already jumped on the bandwagon. In fact, we have a boy who graduated from Australia in his 20s now earning a monthly income of RM10,000 – do you think he could have done it straight from University? We even have a girl who is still studying to be a Doctor already doing the business! And more very young smart people…..)

2. Bankruptcy Victims (this is a real way to build yourselves up again as proven by many, many very successful Japanese entrepreneurs today who once went bankrupt after making millions)

3. Working Class People (the business offers you an option for extra income, passive income and one that could grow infinitely should you choose an early retirement)

4. Mothers (working full time, part-time or otherwise, you can do this at your own pace leaving you plenty of flexibility and time to spend with your children and chores around the house. I am the PERFECT example of this because I am still the freaking chef, chauffeur, cleaner, teacher, dishwasher, household director as you may, as I do not have any help at home; yet I am growing this business quite nicely and consistently)

5. Low Income Earners (such as Government servants, accounts clerks, teachers, waitresses, etc. This would offer them a fantastic opportunity for residual income to supplement their current income).

6. Entrepreuners / Businessmen (these guys only want to make more money, and can play the Izumio Business in a big way like the Indonesians where they invest a large amount and get a 24-46% return, much more than the Fixed Deposit at our local banks. Of course, if you invested in Property, you could get much more but with Property, there is a higher risk)

7. Investors (just like businessmen, they are looking at ways to grow their money and this is one sure way to do it IF you know how to play the system, and we can certainly teach you how)

At the end of the day, it is your choice. You should at least give yourself a chance. It could be the chance of your lifetime. Really. I never expected to be doing this EVER. I actually used to look down on these kind of Mom and Pop businesses where every Tom, Dick and Harry could do it but ever since I have met diplomats and people from the United Nations doing this business, I now understand why. If you are keen to give yourself a shot, do contact me at 012-2333840 or email me at mamapumpkin at gmail dot com. I would be more than happy to give you all the details with zero obligation for I have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Is talent inborn or bred?

Is talent inborn or bred? It is both really. My natural talent is creativity. I got it from my Mom. If you needed a hundred ideas, I could come up with them. I am just usually too damn lazy to. But if you offered me enough chocolate, I would do it. That part of my brain is just wired that way. I am not good with numbers nor am I funny, but I can design almost anything. Just not necessarily a mathematical formula or a star chart from the galaxy.

T1, she is naturally talented in talking. LOL!!! OK, she’s also a really good ideas person always ready with several solutions to any problem. She is good at drawing too and making up stories, but not so good at creative writing. She says her hand gets painful when she writes so prefers just voicing out her stories. *faint* She is really good at coming up with ideas on how to get her sister to do something that she does not want to do and that is a real talent because if all Moms could do it, parenting becomes a freaking breeze. I guess that would make T1 a really good mother because she has all the caring and nurturing qualities too. She’s such a sensitive lass, my girl. She has been getting straight A’s at school despite taking a year out last year and despite being weak at Math the previous year, has managed to stay ahead by being persistent and diligent in completing her school work. I am so very proud of her. She’s a really good girl. My best friend.

T2, on the other hand, is a feisty little chilli padi. Although she’s a very sensitive girl who gets hurt easily, she can make my blood boil so hot till I feel like throwing her out the window many a time. Still. Even at 5.5 years old. But to be fair, she is getting better. Ever since she started school, she’s had to tow the line so I think she realises that there are boundaries that even her as a princess just cannot cross. Hahaha. Kudos to Mrs Raj. T2 is a natural singer, dancer and performer. She is very good in memorising song lyrics, sings to tune and dances like a pro. She takes time to warm up to strangers but once she is all warmed up, can perform and talk like an old grandmother. She is such a spark of energy and humour and brings joy to my days every single day. But can too make me lose my patience. Her reading ability is picking up and now she can memorise 30 words of spelling and ejaan every week. Something I really celebrate because I never expected her to do it due to her slower reading development as compared to T1 who started reading at 3.

It goes to show that both girls, have their inborn talents yet if they put their minds to something, they can achieve it too. It is the same for anyone. If you decide you will do something, nothing can stop you except yourself so give yourself a chance. If you really want to do something, get out of your comfort zone and just do it!

Look at Madonna. She’s not exactly a good singer at all yet she’s managed to top the charts many a time in history. Persistence and hard work WILL get you there if you really want something.

So if your child really enjoys something but isn’t very good at it, do not give up. Encourage, celebrate, persist. And one day, watch your child soar in whatever it is that she was never very good at. It all comes from the self esteem that you build upon them. If you let them believe they can achieve anything, they can. If you believe you can achieve anything, you can too.

Annie, the musical…

maxresdefault

Annie, the musical, we will be watching this weekend! I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. Last year, I suggested to the school to do Annie for their Annual Production and this year I am getting it!!! The school performed such a magnificent perfomance last year, in fact, they have been producing excellent shows year after year, some even better than the real Broadway I kid you not. These kids are so talented and kudos to the teachers who guide them to brilliant performances. So really, I cannot wait. A few of T1’s friends are performing on stage too and some playing in the live orchestra. T1 herself could not get a spot because quite frankly, she sings off pitch and cannot dance for peanuts. T2, however, is a natural when it comes to these kind of things, so it is very clear who each of the girls have taken after.

Annie, the movie, used to be my all time favourite show as a kid. Why? Because I pretty much felt like an orphan myself and could relate. My parents were never around at home so we grew up with maids and well, how stimulating are maids? They don’t really give a shit, mine didn’t anyway. So we were lonely kids. I loved Annie and could watch it over and over again. I have memorised all the songs in Annie and even my girls know most of the songs already. It is such a fun little girl show and now whenever T2 misbehaves, I will threaten to send her to the orphanage and very quickly she will fall in line. Hahaha. She knows I love her to bits and would never, ever send her to an orphanage.

If you have never watched Annie, you must. It’s going to be a fabulous weekend with Annie and the Swiss circus!

Club Med Maldives

So I really flew to The Maldives on Business Class and had the best time ever for FIVE WHOLE DAYS!!! Not a single kid on the entire island of which the company booked the whole damn island!!!!

THANK YOU, NATURALLY PLUS!!!!

And to make things so damn cool, I have so far won 2 holiday tickets to Japan (but since we will already be going to Japan as a family later in December, I will give this holiday away to 1-2 lucky friends!! Because hmm…..I’m onto winning my 3rd Japan ticket now. Heh). I would much rather give this ticket away than exchange it for products because going on a holiday with friends is just so much more fun. I brought a friend along to the Maldives and it was just perfect.

The best news after this is that I was just told that I made the World Leadership Invitation to Sydney!!! SYDNEY!!! I have been to Perth and Melbourne but never to Sydney. Plus we will be having our annual celebrations at the Sydney Opera House itself. No other public organisation has managed to get approval to host an event there apart from Governmental organisations and the Izumio company is definitely not part of the Government, hahaha. Is that awesome or what? And people are still suggesting that Izumio is a scam? Get real.

The absolute best news of all is that my hubs will also get a free holiday to Sydney together with me. That is a big deal because this trip is one that you cannot just win. You have to be invited hence the title, World Leadership Invitation. Hee. OK back down to Earth I come. Let’s talk about The Maldives…..Paradise on Earth:

When I was first told that we were going to fly Air Lanka to the Maldives, I was like THE FUCKKKK?????? Is it SAFE???? I started asking everyone to pray for me because I am not ready to die and be part of an air crash, so pray they did. Little did I know that I would be traveling Business Class (there was no First Class) and heck, service on Air Lanka was excellent!! Dare I say it was better than flying MAS because the crew were really professional and spoke perfect English. They wore lovely peacock sarees, food was great (Curries always go well with me though I actually had a seafood platter for one of the meals, and lots of champagne *gulp*), and the chair could recline into a flat sleeping position but not only that, it had a massage function. Yeah, baby……the chair vibrated. LOL!!

11150782_10153229582062419_8802165119596661606_n

Lucky me, got to sit all alone. I could’ve played musical chairs by myself. After pretty much a 14 hour journey that involved KLIA at 6am in the morning, followed by a flight to Colombo, then transit before the next flight to Male, and then finally a speed boat to Club Med, I finally saw the Indian Ocean. I was terrified of falling into the deep blue sea but the speed boat had a window (which doesn’t help much if the boat capsizes) but at least it protected us from getting wet!

It was a fast speed boat and at a distance, I thought I saw a shark trailing us!!! Can you see? Look hard!!!

1517525_10153229583287419_2740684539009964552_n

And then finally, we were greeted with the most amazing welcome from the Club Med Team and the Naturally Plus Team, which doesn’t show in the pic below as it was colourful and noisy and super fun. I missed the picture opportunity because I was being entertained as a privileged guest!

11255217_10153229583342419_417737197000967131_n

The Maldives was just perfect. It was so beautiful that I struggle with words to describe it.

11136766_10153220414027419_343888139337241833_n

I could have sat in the tub all day with a book or even without just staring out into the sea. All day. Because so much action happened in the waters. Either you see huge turtles swimming by, or baby sharks, or colourful fishes, we even saw a big fish fighting for it’s life from an even bigger fish (teenaged shark?) and lost. RIP fishy.

10390041_10153229581432419_106331902020086223_n

The company had organised so many activities for us, and Club Med itself had so many activities lined up, we were spoilt for choice. Honestly, I could have done nothing and sat in my room all week and would have still been very happy.

11071779_10153229583627419_4237453215425656399_n

The waters were so clear!!! And if you looked beyond, it was blue, not green. Colourless beneath you, then blue, then dark blue when you get deeper. We took the opportunity to check out the spa that was offering a promo for USD59 for a 50 minute massage. Dang! We had already paid USD34 for a 50 minute massage at Colombo Airport just because we had to experience what an INDIAN massage felt like. At the airport, it was LOUSY. If you’re ever at Colombo airport, there is a massage place there beside Coffee Bean, don’t go there if you’re a massage pro like me. You will not appreciate it.

The Club Med Spa at Maldives had much better Balinese girls to offer a proper massage so we went every day. We were on holiday, what the heck.

10408832_10153229582752419_8758680879109936171_n

We had our massages in open air rooms shielded by bamboo blinds. Surprisingly, it wasn’t hot or maybe there was air-conditioning and I didn’t realise it?

11220883_10153229582952419_6613631646181472139_n

We had 5 whole days on an island all to ourselves that we could walk round and round and round the entire island and the worst thing about it? Guess!! Guess!!

11182205_10153220413917419_1472851142047850810_n

The WIFI was shaitttttssssss…….it was hilarious as we were caught once or twice daily searching for good WIFI spots (practically non existent) so much so that I have decided that my next holiday destination MUST have good WIFI. Only if I am with my entire family will I forego the WIFI. It is horrible when you cannot get in touch with your family when you are miles away on a deserted island!!! I needed to know that the Hubs remembered to pick the girls up from school daily!!!

This was one of the WIFI spots, in an air-conditioned lounge but seriously, the signals were lousy. A complete waste of time. At least I got to finish up 1.5 books whilst at The Maldives.

11262132_10153229583102419_5875661867974352755_nS

So since I didn’t have WIFI, I did morning YOGA by the beach……I even went to the GYM, OK????

11295804_10153229583227419_6075762266186196369_n

Had fun playing games to keep the body moving, did some snorkelling, did not participate in the TEAM TELEMATCH (hehe, we were like naughty students hiding from it)…..

11143724_10153229583132419_6746547308075208505_n

But I did overdo it on my last day there, I went out into the sea, we had to take a test before being allowed to go out into the sea. When I first heard we had to take a swimming test, I was quite shocked. What test is it? What for? We have life jackets, right? Why do we need a test? Apparently currents are so incredibly strong that even with a life jacket, you could be 200 metres away from the boat within seconds. OK, so the test involved swimming back and forth in the sea for 25 metres against the waves and following the waves and the strategy was to glide with the waves so you save up your energy for the swim back. Initially I told them, “Aiya….I was a State Swimmer in my teens, surely I can pass a swimming test!!”

Then I remembered, I was a State Swimmer almost 30 years ago. This meant stamina now….Errrr…..Hmm…Gee….. Suddenly, I wasn’t so sure if I even wanted to take the test!!! What if I didn’t make it??? Because apparently so many people couldn’t make it!!! Fuck!! Where would I hide my face???

But I psyched myself up for it and shit, it was not easy. The waves are BIG and STRONG!!! It’s like you keep swimming and swimming with all your might but you do not move!!!!! *pengsan*

Due to pride, of course I passed. I used my thunder thighs to kick with all my might and I had to because my legs were super short so I had to kick doubly triply hard. Dammit. And then when we were really out in the ocean with the life jacket, I realised that within seconds, I was almost 100 metres away from the boat. SHIT!!!! I kept swimming and swimming but I wasn’t moving!!!! Well, it was the same for everyone else so what the boat did was sail towards the people every few seconds since the people kept moving farther and farther away all the time. So damn tiring.

After that ocean experience, we settled for the swimming pool where we did Aqua Aerobics followed by team water polo followed by water dancing. I got completely sun burned and by evening, I was in coma.

11202069_10153229583672419_2224779334099054534_n

Which was a real bummer because that very evening, there was a beach party and dinner outdoors at the beach!!! And all I could think of was, fuck, I need my bed. See how beautiful the setting was? Not a good shot but believe me, it was really beautiful. Very romantic and at that point, I was missing my family like crazy…….

11011203_10153229583442419_535439232206259858_n

The wind was strong that evening and I was wondering if we would be attacked by flying food, flying tables even, but thankfully they managed to keep everything under control. They were evidently very experienced in hosting beach parties. The night sky with stars was just blue with shimmers of glint. Oh. My. God. If only I had my DSLR with me then.

11265255_10153229583482419_5788244177478425159_n

The next day, there was a foam bubbles party which I refused to participate in though I kept thinking how much my kids would have loved it. LOL!! Everyone got into the bubbles pit and started splashing foam and bubbles on each other and the music was blasting.

11060901_10153229583392419_5279470285441249285_n

That night, there was a very good show by the Club Med Team. Actually, there was a show by them every single night but that night was special. We danced and parties the night away and I again had a really good workout dancing non stop.

11218782_10153220414092419_3828060698256761552_n

There was this huge tree at the centre of the resort that we passed by every day and it brought back memories of my departed best friend, Samantha. Sometimes, I feel her following me. Just like my Mom. I still find it amazing how I get a good parking spot every single time ever since she passed. Really spooky weird.

Here’s the tree by day and by night……

13496_10153220746627419_1411263974064419789_n  11139434_10153220414297419_7397981688598128135_n

On our final day at Club Med, I chilled with my big boss with our feet up. He told me about a RM40 million project he was offered by someone which he declined. He is a retired business man. Doing this project would mean taking charge of construction again and he would probably only see the full amount after 10 years. He said he was much happier doing the Izumio business. He travels the world just to meet people and save lives, or help them with their suffering. Not just health ailments and pain, but from financial sufferings too. There is a single Mom in the States who held 4 jobs squatting at her relatives home. She is half Malaysian. My big boss is working to get her out of her misery and by doing this business, she has managed to drop 2 of her jobs. She has also been promised a free holiday back to Malaysia with her daughter. Stories like that inspire me. He says, all we have to do is to keep sharing with sincerity. That is our job.

1507163_10153229583547419_4865368104025784814_n

And whilst we discussed about life, health and financial freedom (he earns RM39,000 plus a WEEK!!!), he tells me that I will get there one day too and doing such a meaningful business, is worth more than its weight in gold. With such money, he will set up a charity foundation to help the needy. With money, you can save even more lives. He is making a difference in this world and I will be his first loyal scout to assist.

He told me that when he was in the States, one of the guys offered to buy him a branded bag because he uses a Naturally Plus freebie bag but he politely declined. He says wearing an expensive bag does not mean you are rich. He likes his freebie bag thank you very much! Even if he goes around dressed like an old Ah Pek, he has enough money to buy a sports car with cash, or fly his family of 5 to Paris for a week of shopping at his whim. But he doesn’t. His aim in fact is to invest RM1 million next year back to his team members in helping them succeed. I just happen to be a lucky team member. Damn bloody lucky.

We watched the baby sharks beneath our feet as we discussed more life events and stories. So inspiring hearing all his old uncle stories. He is such a sharp man. He calculates numbers in split seconds like he’s just blinking his eyes whilst I go blank and whip out my phone calculator, and even then, can’t quite get it right. Duh.

We talk about people. We talk about family. We talk about the future. Next year, I will be going to Italy for sure. And Turkey. And who knows where else. Oh, maybe America. So much traveling, and soon the Hubs can retire from his work and the kids may have to start skiving school. If they want to follow Mommy, that is.

11256600_10153229583732419_5245682860310665221_n

Such a perfect holiday at Club med Maldives. I have better photos but they’re all stuck on my phone and I am too lazy to move them over. This should do for now. Before we left the island, we saw this yacht just before hitting the airport and it reminded me of Tok-Tok’s yachts. How I miss those sailing days with Mom. 3-4 times a year just setting sail in the hot-hot sun. What were we thinking?!?

11112503_10153229582507419_3968185986029805109_n

And after another 14 hour journey and making lots of new friends, I was greeted by this sunrise in KL.

It said Welcome Home……..

11167914_10153226249687419_2606725632068019419_n

Can you believe it? A perfect holiday all paid for by Naturally Plus. Next up, Japan. And all because I share about the fact that Izumio and Super Lutein exists in the market and is yours if you want it. Several people have told me that they have done this business and taken these products when it first came into Malaysia several years ago but they not only not work but they failed in the business. Unfortunately, the early years people who started distributing the products knew nuts. They had no clue what the products actually were and what the products could do. Such powerful products, yet they missed such a Golden Opportunity. They were not educated about it. They never bothered to research it. So they failed. How would you even begin to see a difference if you cannot even commit to the correct dosage for any one particular ailment? I am truly blessed. If you can see how powerful the products are in preventing you from further medical bills, you will realise that they are actually not so expensive. Especially not when you can refer 1 or 2 people to try them out.

Seriously, eliminate all your other vitamins and unnecessary purchases, and paying RM222 per bottle becomes very affordable. And if you want to consume it for free, you can too! Just ask me how. It is seriously such a damn good product. If you had someone critically ill, you would even pay RM3,000 per bottle if you knew it would help.

So yeah, from pushing Izumio trolleys around to help others have access to Izumio……

………….it brought me to Club Med Maldives. Not a bad deal at all. Especially considering all the bonuses I’ve been paid for it. Heh. London, Germany, Netherlands, Arizona, Australia, Myanmar…..I’ll be bringing Super Lutein to you real soon.

Izumio and Super Lutein for CANCER

A much awaited post this is, Izumio and Super Lutein for Cancer, and one that is difficult for me to write because my own Mom fought a long battle with cancer yet these products could have not only possibly saved her, it would have given her a better quality of life, and prolonged her life even despite the fact that she refused any treatment from hospitals and lasted a whole 14 years. My confidence in the products came a tad late or perhaps I would have forced it down her throat…..I guess God has a reason for everything.

Izumio and Super Lutein are endorsed as Japan’s number one cancer prevention supplement. Clinical trials have been done to show results that those who consume sufficient dosage of Izumio and Super Lutein will not get cancer.

The Japanese Association of Preventive Medicine of Adult Diseases (JAPA) which comprise more than 6,600 Doctors is a prestigious organisation in Japan affiliated with the Japanese Association of Doctors and the Olympic Medical Committee amongst others, who have strict guidelines on certification of products sent to them annually for approvals. Easily 20-30 thousand products get submitted each year yet only 20 make it out alive. The strict criteria for approvals from JAPA include:-

1. The products are free from animal testing and must be human tested for a minimum of 6 continuous months to detect any side effects.

2. The products need a further 6 months of testing on humans to confirm that the product does what it claims to do. In the case Super Lutein, it is cancer prevention and chronic diseases. This test is what separates Super Lutein from the rest because most just drop out at this stage, whereas Super Lutein passed the test with flying colours.

3. The raw ingredients in the product has to be pure and natural with the highest quality of origin. For example, the Lutein in Super Lutein are from the best source in the world from America’s Marigold flowers and are US FDA approved and GRAS approved as a safe product. Similarly, the blueberries and blackcurrants, and all other ingredients in Super Lutein are also sourced from the best in the world. The Lutein in Super Lutein is also patented around many countries around the world.

4. The company must not be in any debt, disputes and must be able to guarantee the quality of the product and the high quality and security of the entire manufacturing process. Super Lutein also has ISO9001 and GMP certifications which have tested for microbial inspection of all raw materials.

So when someone asks me if Izumio and Super Lutein can help with cancer, my answer would be most definitely. Then they will continue to ask what about this particular type of cancer or that particular type of cancer, and my answer will still be the same. They will then say that their cancer is most unique so am I absolutely sure it will help their very rare form of cancer? Absolutely. Cancer is cancer. It is all a result of over production of free radicals in the body and insufficient nutrition so the cells start mutating and more and more cancer cells form.

I have had several cancer patients on the products now of all stages, even terminal cancer patients. Some have healed completely without chemotherapy and just by consuming our products at very high dosage, some have healed together with chemotherapy and our products (easing the entire chemo process, and so far always reducing the original chemo dosage prescribed by the Doctors), and some are still on the products as they have only just started their course. Whatever the case, even when they have not been 100% cleared of cancer yet (it’s only been 3 weeks! whereas many have had the all clear with our products), they are reporting that they feel so much better after taking Izumio and Super Lutein. For one, the pain has reduced significantly. Secondly, they have much more energy and an increased appetite. Thirdly, they have renewed hope. Even if Izumio and Super Lutein fail to save them (as this is really a race against time), it will most certainly offer them a much better quality of life if they are at their final stage. It is not fun being sick with cancer. I have seen my own Mother suffer tremendously in pain for so many years. I almost wanted to just kill her. Thus if you have a loved one who is suffering from cancer, please make the investment to end their suffering, and who knows, their lives could extend for much longer.

And if you come from a family with a history of cancer prevalence, then definitely take Izumio and Super Lutein to prevent the onset of cancer in your own body. It is one of the reasons why I take Izumio and Super Lutein to prevent cancer.

So far, in my own experience, we have had the following successes with cancer:-

1. Nose Cancer

2. Colon Cancer

3. Breast Cancer

4. Prostate Cancer

5. Liver Cancer

6. Uterus Cancer

7. Lung Cancer

8. Brain Cancer

9. Leukaemia

10. Lymphoma

11. Bladder Cancer

12. I will add on as and when the list increases…..

So yeah, cancer is a bitch. But now, there is hope.

My first success with the Izumio and Super Lutein Business

Little did I know that I would come up so fast in this new venture of mine that has happened by default, but yes, it has been one helluva ride. I just cannot believe I am doing this crazy MLM business which is often frowned upon, shunned, placed in the scam box with other ‘real’ scams, and thrown into the fire by fierce sceptics. Like WTF, right? Why am I putting myself into this??? Me? The very scientific and logical internationally educated me?

Sometimes, you just have to probe a little further to realise that not everything is black and white and not everything can be solved by scientists. Like really.

It took me more than a year to research these products and even after subscribing to them and knowing it helped me (because I physically felt it and was so much better, AND it was recommended by my IJN cardiologist to continue taking them), I was still sceptical. I mean, I knew it was a good product but to share with others that it could help them with leukaemia? Come on…..And the products can help the body in so many ways? Come on……until I understood the fundamentals of the products and why it worked.

It is pure nutrition. When we consume the products, we are literally drinking water (with added Hydrogen in phenomenal concentrations, all good for the body, I can assure you) and eating fruit and vegetables (but only getting the carotenoids from it in very high doses, not the fibre). Together, they form a complete nutritional supplement which garners you to not require ANY other supplement. The products may appear costly at first but once you eliminate all the other possibly harmful (due to fillers and binding agents that cause problems to your kidneys and liver) drugs and supplements, eliminate the potentially hefty medical bills when hit with disease, calculate your costs of down time when you are ill, or to prevent yourself from a critical illness altogether, it makes it more worthwhile. What more, you could actually recuperate your costs on the products whilst consuming them making them a perfect win-win-win for every individual from age 6 months to 100 years old.

My confidence came when I first met the bald leukaemia girl who skipped school for 1.5 years to undergo chemo. When her father told me that she had healed within 8 months, had her gene chromosome reversed and stopped vomiting after every chemo session, I listened and went, “hmmmm……” The girl is happily back at school now with a full head of hair. Alhamdullilah.

It was only when I started having my own customers comprising leukaemia and cancer patients (including Stage 4 terminal patients) conveying to me themselves that they are feeling so much better that I now have full faith in Izumio and Super Lutein. After 6 months, I have seen enough for myself to know that Izumio and Super Lutein are really good for the body. Sometimes I introduce the products to new people and they say they have taken it before and it didn’t work. My immediate response is that they were not advised appropriately because if you take sufficient dosage for your particular condition, it has a really high chance of helping you. Of course, everyone is different and has different pathways but out of a hundred people that the products help a certain condition, perhaps there is one who does not respond as positively. Such is life. Maybe that particular patient needs more time or an even higher dosage, or maybe the patient is allergic to Hydrogen. Who knows, right?

This week, I was told that I was the top person in Malaysia who’s helped the most people for the last month. The company had no monthly deadlines for me, no monthly commitments, all I did was share the wonders of these supplement with everyone I met right here on this blog and very little on Facebook. I hardly approached any of my friends because I didn’t want them to think that I was a product pusher. It is the last thing I want to do, to pressure anyone into taking the products or to even do the business. All I do is share my own experience with how the products have helped me in more ways than one, and share what it has done to my own customers. That’s it. It’s your call after that. Take it or leave it. I am not desperate for anyone to consume the products. With people I care more for, and I have only done this twice, I have gone a step further to try to make them see how the products or the business would help them. But if they do not respond, I can only do so much. Ultimately, you need to help yourself before anyone else can help you.

I was invited to attend a small company event and suddenly to my surprise was called up on stage to be presented with the following certificate and then made to talk! OMG!!! Completely unprepared!!!

I can’t be bothered to hide my full name on the certificate because heck, I have nothing to hide. This is me, like it or not.

IMG_4751

So I talked some crap as I usually do…….and the best part was that I had won several thousand worth of products. Beautiful products to make me more beautiful. SCORE!!!

11234820_108478229484016_2827849210024978440_n

And I was so nervous standing on stage being confronted by these millionaires. Here I was, newbie, who knew hardly enough about the business, but suddenly feeling that maybe……just maybe……I could be a millionaire like them in a few years, let’s make it a breaking record of under 3 years. I love to dream. Here I am talking nonsense again when the real purpose is to help others gain a better quality of life and be rid of pain, depression and hardship.

11008518_108478266150679_7686657363469818655_n

The audience was just under 200. I had never had such a large audience ever. But I was OK. Thanks to this Gayatri lady, I was OK. She spurred me on towards my first presentation not too long ago. Maybe it’s the Hydrogen working on my brain, who knows. But now, my fear of facing a crowd is gone. So much so I can feel confident to travel to Melaka to hold a presentation or meet a crowd of 50 to explain why I do what I do.

IMG_4745  

Isn’t life full of adventure? I never imagined myself to end up here. When the Hubs insisted I quit my job last year because I was not functioning as a normal human being due to my health issues, we did so on the basis that I would cut expenses due to the loss of a huge chunk of income, and for me to rest. We had to start saving money for my open heart surgery that would cost in the region of 150-200k RM. But after being on the products, I no longer suffer from tiredness. I am buzzing like never before and most of all, I am in a place that feels so at home.

It is my Mother’s Birthday today (9th May) and I dedicate this to her:

Mama,

When you made me, it might have been unintentional but God already had a plan. You could have given me up so easily as I was a baby in demand, yet you fought to keep me when everyone else advised otherwise. You raised me as a Single Mom till I was 5 when you decided I needed a father figure. You made me 2 brothers to love me as backup. I know I can always count on them. You sacrificed your entire life to ensure I had a sound education and be stable enough to stand on my own 2 feet. You gave me such freedom and never pressured me to do anything yet insisted that I held strong family and dignified values. You threw me into the deep end many a time to teach me that I must take care of myself because without you, I only had myself to depend on. You built in me, strength. You grew in me, kindness. You forced upon me, empathy. After living and seeing so much of the world in my short time here, meeting and knowing more people than most in a lifetime, I shout with conviction that you are still the most incredible, magnanimous woman I have ever come across. Tok-Tok says the same about you because it’s true. Where eyes failed to open, you taught me to see with colour and perspective. When hearts would normally go cold with revenge and hatred due to severe betrayal, you inflated mine with such unconditional love so I would forgive my worst enemies. Although I am frequently misunderstood by others, you blessed me with calm to let go of what people fail to understand. You have guided me to know what is truly important and given me the gift of intuition to make good decisions. Because of you, I loved myself enough to find my perfect partner in life. Life has been pretty easy and I really cannot complain about anything. Your years of suffering will never be forgotten as it has translated into my good life. I will always be grateful to you but no amount of gratitude will be enough to show you just how thankful I am to you, for all that you have done for me, for us, then and now. Yes, freaking now! I know you’re with us, Mom. You keep following us everywhere. You help us get prime parking spots all the time, you stop the rain when we want sunshine, you make all our wishes come true. Is there life after death? Because I am so sure you are with us. Not in sight but your presence is felt more than ever, every single day, in every location. Even the girls feel you. You must be having a really great relationship with Allah as He is allowing you so much rope to play with. We miss you, but we’re not crying about it. Your presence, I just cannot explain it to others, but it is all encompassing. Your laughter, your screaming voice, your warm smile, they still fill our days with so much meaning; even when you are not physically present. How come?!? Whatever the case, I’m sure you’re having the time of your life watching Friends and pulling the Jackpot machine with your old bunch, toying with us kids every day, yet moving us into our right paths. Even T1 feels you, the girl who skipped a whole year of school is still doing so well. You’re helping her, aren’t you? Your favourite grandchild who exemplifies your soul in a smaller body. She is growing up so fine and I know you are so very proud of us. T2 is so very happy too. Thank you, Mom. Thank you. And Happy Birthday. You are 60 today.

Your only daughter x

PS. I hope I can live up to your legacy of helping as many people as possible. See you again real soon <3

TGV Family Cinema – FINALLY!

5a8abd6d-a2ee-444f-9896-f86ac9122799

Last weekend, we attended TGV’s inaugural Family Cinema opening to watch The Avengers and had a fabulous time. What exactly is TGV’s Family Cinema? Finally, in Malaysia, we have a baby friendly kid friendly cinema where we can actually go watch a movie together with our little ones without worrying about them acting up or disturbing other cinema goers.

TGV’s Family Cinema allows the kids to talk and babies to cry. YES!!! They are allowed!!! And nobody will go “hush!!”

T2 was asking me questions at the cinema and for the first time ever, I did not have to tell her to “Shushhh….later.”

TGV’s Family Cinema also has the lights dimmed but not to a point where it’s pitched black and dark and scary, which scares many little ones. But here, it is only dimmed…..so much so that there were little toddlers walking up and down the stairs whilst the movie was going on. Hilarious! And oh, so cute. Children are allowed to move around in the entire cinema and scream and shout if they so wish. It is a good way for them to meet like minded friends, haha.

Another feature that the TGV’s Family Cinema has is a softer sound. You got it! Can you imagine? T2 for the longest time hated going to movies because not only was it dark and scary but the very loud surround sound freaked her out too. But thanks to TGV’s Family Cinema, we can all go as a family to watch a movie at a kid friendly showing. And do you know that they have a baby’s changing table too at the back within the cinema? I kid you not. T2 asked if we would be able to smell the baby’s poo then – LOL!! And no, we did not.

TGV’s Family Cinema offers families, especially those with little ones, an opportunity to enjoy a movie out without having to worry about babysitters and the kids too, will not have to suffer separation anxiety from being away from Mommy.

TGV’s Family Cinema will be held at 11am every weekend starting with TGV One Utama followed by the rest of their branches. Do contact TGV directly for their rollout status.

The BEST part of the TGV Family Cinema is of course, the price!!!

It will cost only RM7 PER ADULT and TOTALLY FREE OF CHARGE for ALL KIDS!!!!

Isn’t that just awesome??? I think we will watch a TGV Movie every weekend from here on!!! Thank you, TGV.

What goes up must come down…..

As the title suggests, I’m having a really blaaaaah day today. Here I am fluffing about at home when I really should be out at the Post Office to send some Izumio and Super Lutein to Europe. Why don’t I just get the Europe office to post it to the customer directly? Because the customer would like some Izumio and Izumio hasn’t arrived yet there. Naturally Plus, the company that makes Izumio and Super Lutein always starts a new market with Super Lutein first and I can understand why because after all, they grew from strength to strength on one product alone in Japan which was Super Lutein! So yeah….I’m supposed to go to the post office, tidy up the home, cook, and exercise. But right this moment, I feel like doing NONE of that.

I’m definitely PMS-ing. I wish it would just come so I can get it over and done with. And freaking come now and not when I am in the Maldives next week. Basket.

Last night, I visited my Mom’s old friend and stayed out till 1.30am and then this morning had to get up earlier than usual because T2 had a school trip to go watch the Gingerbread Man. I’d also organised to meet 2 ladies at school, one of the school Mom’s to deliver my new Young Living Essential Oils set (Yay! I’such a sucker! But they smell oh, so nice…) and another to pass her a box of Izumio. I’m now excitedly playing with my new Essential Oils set. Hahaha.

I am looking at all the unnecessary stuff we have and I just cannot be bothered to sell anything. My time is worth RM300 an hour. How much time will it take for me to sell the junk we have versus what we would actually get for it? So not worth it and the same amount of time could be spent making more income instead, or better still giving it to my beloved monyets. So yeah, I think I’m going to resolve to just pack everything away with no more hope of selling anything. Just give it all away. If the heart was so inclined, I would have gotten my act together to sell stuff by now.

It’s like making the decision to run a vegetable selling business versus running the Izumio business. One requires more physical time and one makes way more money. Which do you choose? I suppose it’s like being a teacher. Are you driven by passion or are you driven by money? In the case of my Izumio business, I’ve clearly found a win-win balance. Helping others heal and still earn an income. I’m starting to see signs of residual income pouring in which is sweet. I have worked hard after all, well, played hard too. Sometimes I’m not sure where the line is since I have so much fun doing it!

My girls are so proud of me and actually share the wonders of Izumio to their friends too! No shame! I did not tell them to but what would their friends know anyway.

Someone said something that stuck in my head yesterday and today is a day of pondering. It is about loving yourself enough to exercise. Hmmm. I am thinking very deeply about it and wondering if I could make that commitment. I certainly can’t be loving myself very much because I have not exercised since my slipped disc saga! Fail.

To infinity and beyond……….

The good news is, I am having a massage at 4pm today and I am now moving my legs on the stationary bicycle as I type. I am sure I will be feeling better later.

Strange People

3f8d7986db9fe31eb715780a328ed336

Last year, I had one of the worse experiences of my life because I had made some bad choices with people and many unfortunate series of events happened through absolutely no fault of mine. It really takes a crisis to very quickly show you who your allies are and who your enemies are. It was almost entertaining to an extent because people would come up to me to warn me about this person and that person, and everyone would be bitching about each other, and seriously, all I did was conveyed a message and BANG!!! Suddenly, the people who said those things all turned and became best of friends with these girls that they had bitched about because they were so guilty that I had let out their thoughts. I did not say it was them, but I guess they felt guilty anyway. To me, I didn’t even care. I was just fed up of the non-stop complaining of each other. Like get with the programme, women. We are here to elevate ourselves, not push each other into the ditch.

And then we have those who are too nice because they have an agenda. Oh, like I was born yesterday? When I say that it takes at least 5 years to assess a person, you are actually just touching the surface. A person can pretend to be your best friend for 5 years, and then say goodbye when the chips are no longer in your favour. Thank goodness, I am prepared for such things. Yet on the flip-side, I have met some of the loveliest, most sincere women, who really radiate love and a genuine aura; I’m not sure how but I can sense these women a mile away. They are so simple. They don’t have to buy me stuff, but they go out of their way to help me when I need help. Just simply amazing. So many of them. Thank you.

So many strange people in the world.

This morning, we had Banana Leaf rice at the new Raju’s with some new family friends and we had such a brilliant time. I thoroughly enjoyed my mutton Varuval and we laughed and laughed and laughed with this new family we’ve been destined to meet. Why? Heart patient similarities, children go to the same school, both have interests in Myanmar, both have lived in Bahrain. Like get real???? There were just too many coincidences!!! And they live 5 minutes away from us. They are Indians and we so clicked.

After that, I went about town in search for my Dutch Oven. I have been wanting to purchase a Le Creuset for some time now yet have been waiting for a good sale, or the right colour and size. Finally, friends convinced me that any old brand works just as well, so I went searching. And I could not find!!! Thus I think I’m destined to hearth my kitchen with my favourite colour of Le Creuset. Not quite sure which one that is yet. Pink? Green? Blue? Aqua? Such major life decisions. This would be perfect actually…..

Chiffon-Pink-2

I am now earning a tidy sum of money from my izumio business. Not a large sum but enough to go shopping with should I feel the urge. But honestly, I do not need anything. I was a bad girl though when I went to Singapore and ended up with a few pickups from Tory Burch. But that’s because I had freaking 5 hours at Changi!!!!! What the hell else would I have done??? I never knew Tory Burch leather shoes were so bloody comfortable too!!!! I kept telling the Hubs, at least I didn’t buy Ferragamo because I could not find them at Changi and by the time I did, it was too late. Hermes was out of my league. 1 Hermes bag is enough for half a lifetime. Dear Hubs, I hope you get it that I will be needing another in a few years time. I’m quite a simple girl, really.

Anyway, this is what I bought from Tory Burch. I couldn’t afford more. Ouch. Although the leather was so, so, soooooooo soft and I tried every pair of slipper, pumps and heels, and wanted to get the entire store; I settled for only these 2 pieces.

TB_11159791_659_A  TB_50008642_051

We received some bad news from the girls’ school that they wouldn’t be ready by this year. No real biggie since they are adjusting well at the big campus in Cheras and doing well, I just have to grit my teeth about driving to Cheras every Friday for another 6 months. Grrrr……

All my old friends and acquaintances who have been calling me up from out of the blue, have said they cannot believe how happy I sound these days. Err….I no longer have work stress, yes? Of course, I am happy!!! I am living my life with such excitement these days. Hey, I get to go for a holiday in the Maldives Islands next week. Club Med at that. Who wouldn’t be excited??? I am going with my girlfriends too. Wheeeee…….!!! Plus I have 2 Japan trips signed up. One for the Izumio and Super Lutein factory visits and another for skiing. Just why would I not be happy indeed? I have SO much to be thankful for. And I am trying to make Sydney this year as well. If not, it will definitely be Italy next year. THAT, I can guarantee. Hopefully, I can bring at least 10 girls from my team to Italy with me. Come on, girls. You can so do it!!!

club-med-kani (1)

So yeah, life has been good. I have been healthy without suffering any heart problems although I have joined the valve regurgitation and heart surgery support sites to prepare myself. I have been busy helping the sick and praying for them, and I have been having the craziest time with my two monkeys at home. I’m back to being a Stay-At-Home-Mom yet I am a Working Mom so to speak, so really, I’m not quite sure how one would define me, but who the fuck cares anyway.

In life, all you need to do is to do good, have a clean conscience and help as many people as you can.

PS: And I learnt all this from my legendary Mama, whose birthday is coming up and the girls have specifically asked for a Baskin Robbin ice-cream cake to celebrate Nana’s birthday. We truly miss you so much, Nana, but we know you are beside us at all times or life would not be this good. And as a friend once said, don’t believe everything you see because it may not be true. For example, I wrote recently about T1 doing a presentation and how she did not practise at all. That post made me sound like a super kiasu Mom, when in reality I could be the most laid back Mom. Another example, T1 asked me to do some homework (a song she had to assess for Geography and then ask her Mom to assess). I was so lazy that I just asked her to make up the part where her Mom was supposed to assess the song. Like, I am seriously THAT lazy……….OK, I hope her Geography teacher is not reading this now.

Long Weekend……

Everyone I know has gone to some beach or other and I am so jealous! We tried at the eleventh hour to book Club Med Cherating (DUH!!!) and it was fully booked. Too bad we didn’t think of Tanjong Jara Terengganu or we could have tried that. Too late now. We spent our long weekend in good ol’ Kuala Lumpur instead. Oh, well…..I am off to The Maldive Islands next week anyway so I shouldn’t be complaining. Heeeeee…….

It was a productive weekend nevertheless.

I finally plucked up the courage to highlight my hair. I had wanted to colour my whole head green, in lovely shades of green but the hairstylist at SAW refused. WTF!!! It’s my head, thank you very much!!! He insisted that in order to get green, I’d have to bleach my hair and that was very, very bad. But I didn’t care. I wanted green. I had seen this lovely girl at Smiggles in Singapore who looked like a fairy with her long green hair and I wanted that. But no. He refused. So I settled for streaks of blonde instead and now look like a……well, ok…….you decide. My kids say I look like a tiger.

We also got to watch The Avengers, invited by TGV (bless them, they gave us 8 movie passes in total so we can go for more movies, they expire end July!) and had loads of fun as they were testing their new family cinema concept. And the next day, we watched The Fast and The Furious. Movie buffs, can you tell?

We also explored eating cheaply after spending RM370 on dinner at the Angus Steak House at Publika. But oh, my goodness!!!! It was the best meal ever!!! Their steaks are divine and much better than PRIME. If I need a good steak, I would go to Angus!!! But since then, a friend of mine has promised me that I could do my own Black Angus at home following her recipe so I am certainly going to try that out since we are such carnivores at home. Bad, bad, bad. Anyway, the Hubs freaked out at the RM370 bill and commanded us to stick to a RM30 budget per meal. LOL!!! Honestly, all we had were 2 steaks (one cheaper than the other) and a spaghetti carbonara. Uhuh. I’m not lying.

So we tried our RM30 per meal mission. Our next meal was BAKUTEH on Jalan Ipoh (YUMMMMZZZ!!!) that cost RM65. FAIL. We had 3 rice, 1 pot of BAKUTEH for 2 people, a bowl of Yow Char Kuay, a bowl of Taufu, a plate of iceberg lettuce, and 2 drinks.

The next day, we had Indian food at Anjappar in Brickfields that cost RM48. FAIL AGAIN. We ordered a fish bryiani for 2, a palak paneer, a bowl of rasam, and a pineapple juice.

Finally, we had dinner at The Lake Club and ordered 10 satay sticks, 2 seaweed popiahs, 1 chicken kebab with plain nun, 2 drinks and that cost RM40. FAIL.

But as you can see, we were improving. Practise makes perfect.

That got me thinking…..is it really POSSIBLE for a family of 4 to eat for RM30 per meal???? Our norm used to be RM100-150 and of course, sometimes we go over budget when we eat Korean or Japanese. Or RM1,000 if we ate at PRIME for New Year’s Eve, LOL. It is our absolute mission though, to keep our meals down to RM30 each. Only because I do not feel like cooking all weekend. Yet eating out is so bad for you. I shall really try to cook more during the weekends but it’s my day off. Tomorrow, we are meeting some friends for Banana Leaf. I am already QUITE sure that it isn’t going to cost under RM30. Sigh.

This only means one thing.

I have to work harder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I can because my life saving job is actually quite easy.

Girls tagging their Working Mom

On Day 4 of the girls school holiday, I could stand it no longer. I have had 3 whole days of School Holiday Activities and I needed to get back to my work. I told them that I wanted to visit the Cancer Aunty and they willingly obliged, bless those two monkeys. I’m not sure why they would valiantly protest with certain suggestions I have yet be OK with some. I wanted in fact to visit 2 Cancer Aunties just to buy them some flowers and to sit and chat with them. I know what my own Mom went through. I know how lonely a journey it can be. And so that it what I really wanted to do. Because if anything, I wanted to get to know them. Cancer links me to my Mom.

It turned out that we only had time for one Cancer Aunty and since I had an emergency delivery that very afternoon, off we set off to visit the Aunty but first, we went round and round the residential shoplots looking for some snacks. The girls were hungry and for some reason were craving “Tai Kow Meen“, and in Malay, “Apong“??? Different style from the Malay and Chinese but essentially spongy pancakes sandwiched with peanuts and sugar. The Malays add corn.

Now the strangest things happen when we are in a rush. I wanted to get there and back before peak hour traffic. I had a delivery to do, snacks to hunt for, flowers to get, and dash back before the jam. It was approaching 5pm when we got there and as soon as we found the Apong guy, I wound down my window to order 8 pieces.

EIGHT??? 

Yes, Boss! Lapan Keping!

Tak boleh makan you semua ni! Satu ni besar tahu?, he said as he held up a semi-circle Apong to show me just how large one piece was.

Oh. OK Tiga keping, Boss. 

I left him with extra change out of habit and a genuine desire, and then took the chance to ask him if he knew a florist nearby. And whaddya know, he gave me exact directions where there was a florist. After driving there, I got a parking spot right in front of the florist. Alhamdulillah! Unbuckled the girls and crossed the road to realise I only had RM35 in my wallet. Crapppppp!!!! What am I going to get for RM35!!! I quickly looked around but there was no bank teller in sight so decided to just ask the florist what I could get for RM35. What the hell.

We ended up not doing too badly perhaps because it was the end of the day and she was getting read to close shop? We got ourselves a lily with buds, some baby’s breathe, leaves, a few stalks of carnations and some daisies and chrysanthemums. And then T2 just had to ask if she could have a rose. AIYO!!!!!

Since the roses were looking very tired, I asked the Florist Aunty if T2 could have a rose. She kindly obliged but after seeing the florist wrap my flower bouquet, T2 asked again if her rose could be wrapped too!!!! OMG, this child kills me!!!

But again, the kind florist obliged ever so happily and seemingly delighted that she had managed to draw the happiest smile from T2. I noticed too that she sold Kampung Eggs and much cheaper than those I used to get from Damansara Height. I got her details and will go next Wednesday to collect my week’s supply of Kampung Eggs!!! SCORE!!!

We then set off to visit the Caner Aunty and spent 2 hours with her just chatting whilst the kids watched TV there. I gave her some healing Reiki and prayed for her. Please God, let her live for more than a year. You gave my Mom a good 14 years, I know you can do this for this Cancer Aunty too. And for the other friend of mine who is battling this Cancer Bitch too. OK?

We left before it got dark and rushed home in time for me to whip up a quick, simple dinner. It was surprisingly a really fun day and even my kids said so themselves!! We had so much fun in the car, the three of us, just chatting and laughing and learning more about each other and exchanging ideas. I love my girls. They put so much joy into my life. And thank you, Nana, for always overlooking after us. We know you do because life has just been great. Thank you. It is only with your genuine and pure love for us that this is possible. And for this, I know that it is you who is orchestrating our entire path ways to happiness. Love you so much.

Decopatching in Malaysia

Today is Day 4 of the kids school holidays. So far they have made a trip to the trampoline park, played with friends at play dates, followed me around for deliveries to see how Mommy works hard, and today, practising their creativity with Decopatch. We first learnt of Decopatch whilst we were in Paris visiting our dear friend’s home. She had the loveliest piece of furniture and when we asked where she got such an attractive, vibrant piece, she introduced us to Decopatch!

She even brought us to the mall in Paris where they sold Decopatch. EXPENSIVE!!!!! But what the heck. We were on holiday and it is beautiful after all….

One of my lovely friends, Syn Nee, gave us her old photo screen to use when I mentioned I was looking for a screen to hide the kids MESS and because it had a chip on it, we decided to revive the entire screen to a colourful burst of fun!

Decopatch is essentially lovely colourful thin decorated paper that you glue onto furniture or anything that you wish. It comes with a special glue for different surfaces and really brings stuff to live. We are a colourful, happy family so it is only apt that our stuff reflect us.

IMG_4569

They come in strips of colourful paper costing about 3 EUROS per sheet, the size if probably A3 and then you buy the special glue which is I cannot remember how much, maybe 15-20 EUROS. I remember it was quite expensive so I only bought ONE bottle as it was our first time trying it out. They wanted to buy the whole store but I said try first!!! And luckily I did, because you see, we are such a busy little family that it has taken us 10 months to finally open the damn thing up. LOL!

 

IMG_4570

We also bought some paraphernalia made out of plaster of Paris for T2 to try her hand at Decopatching.

 

IMG_4571

 

As T1 wanted to be completely in charge of the photo screen. Hahaha. Let’s see what she comes up with and what the final product turns out to be. I am really looking forward to this new piece of furniture in my living room space.

 

 

Izumio and Super Lutein for Eczema

Izumio and Super Lutein for Eczema

I have been observing some of my customers who are suffering from eczema and oh my goodness, I feel for them!!! And even more so for the children. Why? Why? WHY??? It is so unfair that innocent children have to suffer so it is another mission of mine to heal as many children from eczema as possible.

I am a sufferer of allergies myself (asthma, sinusitis, psoriasis, mild eczema) and whilst my sinusitis, asthma and psoriasis have improved so much, my VERY MILD eczema has not budged for the last 6 months, until now. How come???? Mine is just a few patches on my body here and there that are scaly and dry and get itchy the moment I eat allergenic food. It is always the same old spots that get itchy. I cannot stand the roughness. No matter how much cream I put on that particular area, it is still as rough. How come the products worked on everything else in my body but not this bloody rough patch?

Finally after 6 months of consuming Izumio and Super Lutein for Eczema, the rough patch on my leg is still there but it is softer. Definitely softer and perhaps so because I have applied Hydrogen Water thrice in this 6 months onto it to bathe it. I was so desperate since consuming the products didn’t seem to improve it so I tried applying the Izumio on it topically. I finally have faith that it can be healed.

Some people have healed their eczema conditions really well with Izumio and Super Lutein but some are still struggling with the detox process. The problem with eczema is that if you have been on steroidal creams, it takes a longer time to heal as there is increased amounts of toxins within the body. But yet, I have been told that if you truly do heal your gut, you CAN heal from eczema or at the very least keep it very controlled. The body is like any other living thing. For example, if you have Diabetes, Izumio and Super Lutein can heal you very quickly, but if you continue to eat sugar after that, you tell me if you think you would get your diabetes back? Some people have shit for brains and expect a miracle cure from Izumio and Super Lutein. It is not magic!!!

It is just very high quality food and water. Whilst it can nourish and heal the body, if you keep abusing your body, then of course you have to keep consuming more nutrients to fight off more free radicals, isn’t it? Is it not common sense?

Here’s a little girl who healed with Izumio and Super Lutein for Eczema within 3 months, and the healing continues. She still gets very mild flare ups but very rarely and nothing like before. I am enlarging the photos on purpose so you can observe the severity of her eczema. She is only 8 years old, the poor girl, but praise the Lord she is now a healthy little chipmunk after Izumio and Super Lutein!

23eb259703d2ab760be73d5a41827f06

When she first started, her entire face was covered with broken and dry skin. Very painful to watch, even more painful for her Mother.

283b939657124857445c8d958293ba47

Do you think as an adult you can withstand the kind of pain like this? This very brave little girl did. She had no choice then.

3b504fc568d971762e34a30ed3ec1bc5  

After a few weeks on Izumio and Super Lutein, her healing process began. There were times when the flare ups were bad but persist she did. This is where most people fail. They do not have the holding power to persist but if you truly want to heal, you must. If this little girl can do it for a few months of pain, you can too. Come on, do you want to heal for life and improve your life or do you want to have recurrent eczema?

e27331ecb994b80700c9163453bec2b9

As her healing progressed, her skin became smoother and smoother, but her eyes were still very swollen.

a760f742a89b187376f477561021da8e

Eventually though with a lot of grit and patience and bravado and strength, look at her face now!!! She has been healed, her skin is smooth and her eyes are no longer swollen. If she gets stressed or eats the wrong thing again, she might itch or get a dry patch again but that is because her healing process is ongoing. Don’t you think an improvement such as this is worth taking the Izumio and Super Lutein already??? If you continue it, you will only get better and better till your entire body comes to an equilibrium of great health.

unnamed

The absolute best part of her journey was that she used to be allergic to cat fur and was not allowed to go near cats. Izumio Hydrogen Water happens to be a natural antihistamine and it heals your allergies so look at her now!!! She is allowed to freely play with cats as she is no longer allergic. Praise the Lord indeed whichever Higher Being you follow. I follow ALL. I am so happy that this little girl is now able to enjoy her cats and so happy  that her skin is healed and that she no longer has to deal with raw, painful wounds. She is blessed, I am blessed. And I am genuinely happy for her healing.

6380f1879412aaffaafa14df3eec831b

This is what her legs went through. Remember, she is just a little girl…..

ce18a416f14b88a7fdf2996f6bc5f8c4

Flare ups were bad!!! Ouch!! Painful much???

c940a7caec1b3c7c998b47c86a3998f5

But now healed. No more broken skin. No more pain. Alhamdulillah.

This is merely ONE of our Eczema patients and there are many, many who are going through this painful but worthy healing process right now from Eczema. Some drop off because they just cannot withstand the pain. Some are still undergoing the process, it could take months……but rather than suffer your entire life with it, is it not worth it to go through several flare ups over a few months and be healed once and for all?

We had one customer who turned out to be allergic to Super Lutein yet the Doctors could not identify what exactly he was allergic to. Oh well. Izumio when taken sufficiently will be able to heal his allergies to the Super Lutein. I have learnt that Eczema comes about from various reasons but the utmost is that there is a problem in the gut. Once you figure out what that is, you have your eczema sorted but most people won’t even have the first clue how. Some are clever and diligent enough to research it to death but mostly it is a tiring affair. If you really want to sort out your child’s eczema, I can help but you really need to follow the various tests and procedures before a solution can be offered. I just don’t want to waste time with people who do not have the real will to see this through. I have a friend who has REALLY healed her son’s eczema and even she is too tired to share how as it is a tedious process. But a very real one. It is gut health.

In the meantime, if you want a quicker fix, you can try Izumio and Super Lutein (and you might get lucky that Izumio and Super Lutein heals your eczema without anything else, assuming you are not allergic to the products), then the tedious process of finding out why your child even has eczema to start with will be unnecessary. The products are 100% safe even for babies and children and there is no such thing as an overdose as it is just water and fruit and vegetables. Really.

Izumio and Super Lutein Business Expansion

Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to run my own business and grow one at such an enormous rate too. I have been incredibly lucky that this Izumio and Super Lutein business of mine has just sky rocketed till I cannot even cope with the demand. I have a list of enquiries just waiting and I’m not sure when I will get a chance to get to them. My late Mom is helping me. For sure!!!

I am suddenly in a position where I have to start exploring logistical solutions, database systems, a marketing team, and because there is only one of me, how would I visit all my dear cancer patients on a regular basis? Yet it is of my top priority. How-How-How?? Too many things to do, too little time. So much for slowing down. It’s not even the hunger for money, I can survive on very little; but in order to raise the bar in helping others, you still need money. I wish the rich and wealthy would just spread out their wealth a bit more so that the poor don’t have to be so poor. A moderate balance so that everyone gets decent food and all the necessary living basics would be really cool. And the extras could be used to heal all those who are suffering.

Being a sick person not so long ago, I can really relate to suffering. The mere disability of not being able to function as per normal and having to lie in bed for the most part of my day, sends me into depression. The slipped disc saga taught me just how much I took my mobility for granted. Fucking hell, it is really not fun to be disabled and feel sick. I would never wish it upon anyone. And that is why I need to expand further so I can live a life of purpose. Without the experience of running a larger scale business, everything is new and touch and go. I am trying now to collaborate with other businesses. Let’s see how it goes.

I think that setting up my own Hydrogen plant in Malaysia is scary, dear lady. Of course, I want to dream big but Mamapumpkin, owner of Malaysia’s first Hydrogen plant is, Hahahahaha!!!! Cannot la!!!!!!! I wouldn’t know the first clue on what to do!!!

But yes, business expansion is imminent. Perhaps more capital injection is required. Not sure what the Hubs will have to say about that since I am no longer a salaried employee earning big bucks. Huhuhu.

My virgin presentation

11113413_10153187496897419_6894029014482616419_n

Today, I gave my first ever presentation to an adult audience that included an ex-United Nations representative and a medical Doctor from the Ministry of Health. Thank GOD I didn’t know who they were till way after or I would have just fainted.

I am never one to go in public to speak. I just cannot do it and have always shied away from being in such a position. Despite being in a high corporate position before, can you believe it? I can do one to one or talk to 2-3 people but put me in front of a big crowd and I’d rather just resign and go home to my teddy bears. But this had to be done, so I called upon an experienced public speaker to help me with some tips and today I freaking did it!!!!!!!

Thank you so much, G, for instilling that oomph in me. I really needed it as it gave me the force to make it happen. And now I’m on fucking cloud nine!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Speaking to the trainer gave me a lot more confidence because I was not sure what to say and she gave me ideas and options which was fantastic because coming from a trained experienced speaker, I was comfortable with her advice!

Before the presentation I was hyperventilating with a booming pulse and I started gasping for air wishing the ground would just swallow me and I could avoid this yet again. But a part of me also really wanted to nip this in the bud once and for all, and I think that because this is my own business, the desire to overcome a hurdle becomes greater? In the past, I made millions for my employers. All my life. One day I woke up and decided, hey, if I can make millions for my employers, why am I not just doing it for myself? But heck, if I cannot even do public speaking then how??? MUST LEARN!!! DO OR DIE!!!

So I did. I secretly visualised that I was talking to my late mother and suddenly I was very relaxed, didn’t stutter, didn’t speed, didn’t fuck up. I nailed it. Not necessarily perfect, but yes, way above what I thought I was capable of. My criticism of myself was that I am too freaking fat. Like so fat that the stage would break kind of fat so I really, REALLY need to lose tons of weight; and the fact that my hair was so long and messy. Next presentation (Oh yea, I have my Mojo now!), I will put my hair up in a neat manner and perhaps remove my blinking glasses that I kept fiddling with as it kept dropping off my flat nose. DANG!!! Where’s your beautifully perfect nose, Ma, when I need it?

Whatever obstacle lies ahead of you in life, just do it. Thrash it and get over it. You can do it. I did.

Walk for Water by AVEDA – 2015

IMG_0831

Every year, T1’s school participates in the AVEDA Walk for Water and this year was no different. Whilst I was in Singapore for the weekend, the Hubs had to bring her at 7am to the walk venue and sort the kids out over the entire weekend. Go Hubby!!!

T1, the crazy girl, never informed us that she had to present on stage until they arrived there and the few kids were summoned on stage to present their water schpiel. Because she couldn’t remember her lines, she had to read out of a piece of paper. WTH!!! That is embarrassing in the highest order!!! Hahaha. She was only given 2 days to memorise some lines and of course, either forgot about it or couldn’t be bothered. What am I going to do with this child? I was discussing this with my SIL why T1 never told us and she said perhaps T1 knew we’d be on her case to memorise the lines and didn’t want the pressure……

But come on, you are going to be presenting to the public, surely you want to present well without reading out of a piece of paper? Only 2 kids read out of paper whilst the rest spoke without reference to anything. I will ask her later why she did what she did. Maybe she really forgot. Would you make your kid memorise the lines if she was presenting in public? It’s only a few lines and she is 10 years old. She is able to memorise Katy Perry lines so why not some lines on water conservation?

Back to the drawing board, we are all going to present and video ourselves today. Hahaha.

In Laws in Town

My schedule has been extremely busy these last few weeks that I have been skipping my daily Izumio and Super Lutein dosage because I actually forget and since every minute of my day is taken up by others, I am to say the least, stretched.

Hmmmm.

I’m quite used to being stretched but I was supposed to be slowing down.

Hmmmm.

It really takes a strong mind to pull the reins on myself to slow down as I am so driven by the passion and the cause to save lives and grow the Children of Myanmar. But still, I need to remind myself that my own health comes first. I have my own children to care for and the Hubs has been the biggest nag from his love for me. He might just want to keep me as maid to his kids, disguising it as love.

I have been running. It almost feels like a marathon and after the last Singapore weekend that turned out to be fabulous as well, and immediately after arriving from a delayed flight at midnight, thus finally getting to bed after midnight, I had to go pick up my in-laws from the airport the very next morning. And here I am now whilst the Hubs has taken them out for a super early breakfast. Talk about being the opportunist, eh? Instead of resting as instructed, I chose to escape into blog world. Heh.

So today, I feel tired. I feel like I need a massage. And suddenly I realise dang, I have not been taking my supplements regularly!!! Is it any wonder? It’s not like I’m the healthiest person on Earth plus we ate out all day yesterday due to the in-laws being in town and me not having enough time to cook. But seriously, I feel like cooking tonight. I am so sick of a whole day of out of home food.

After school yesterday, the girls roped their American based Aunt to play Piktureka with them and I partnered up with T2 whilst T1 partnered with Aunt. T2 was so competitive!!! Small chilli padi kept wanting to win and even wanted to CHEAT to win!!! Whenever there was a tie, T2 would confidently exclaim, “It was definitely Mommy first” very matter of factly when it clearly wasn’t. LOL!!! How did I give birth to a cheat?!? After a while of not winning, she started to sulk. And whilst playing, I could see her determination to win. Wow! In the end though, we lost to Team USA because we had an unfair advantage with firstly, an age difference, and secondly, T1 had memorised the Piktureka board quite well.

This morning when we woke up, T2 came to me in bed and said that today after school, let’s have a rematch. LOL!! Kiasu or what?!? She asked me to ask her Aunt if she would join us to have a rematch today and said that we were going to have a Frozen jigsaw puzzle race. Huh? Assumingly she is very confident in completing her Frozen jigsaw puzzle very quickly? I told her to ask her Aunt herself, don’t make ME the messenger. She got T1 to do it. LOL!! Adoiiiii……ever the delegator, my T2.

So yes, today. 21st April 2015, there is a very important competition going on after school at my home. Team Malaysia versus Team USA. When I told T1 that we were having the Frozen jigsaw puzzle race today, she laughed and said, “Mom, I can do 2 of those puzzles with my eyes closed whilst she finishes one.”

I told T1, let’s do it slower so she can win. Otherwise we will be having more and more competitions non-stop. LOL!!! T1 shrugged and said OK. No water off her back for her. So proud of my T1.

So what shall I do with my in-laws today?

My trip to Kota Kinabalu

Last weekend, my business partners and I (well, my friends really….Just trying to make it sound more professional and failing miserably….) flew to KK on a whirlwind mission and a damn successful one it was!

We had invited everyone we knew in KK for a tea sharing session at the Izumio office in KK. They came, we shared, we ate, we laughed, we drank, we ate some more and we laughed some more. It was FUN!!! Prior to the tea sharing, we went to the hairdresser to wash and blow our respective hairs and shared to the hair salon owner but not before eating KK’s famous beef balls noodles at Hillside. After the tea sharing, we had lobsters and champagne at the expense of our Izumio Boss. Bless him. We are his angels. Charlie’s Angels, only in this case it is Ray’s Angels.

After all that, I spent the night with a dearest friend in KK who lives in a swanky apartment atop a hill overlooking the sea. Perfect. It was just perfect. We ended up sleeping at 4am despite me waking at 4am the previous morning to catch the flight to KK. Yet, because of Izumio, I was fine and dandy the next morning at 8am to catch my flight back to KL to be picked up by my 2 little monkeys at KLIA. It was a fabulous trip that enriched me, taught me so much and opened my eyes.

Making Reading Fun

Making Reading Fun

As a Mom, I read tons of books to T1 since she was 6 months old. When she was a toddler at play school, she was allowed to pick and choose any book at all that piqued her interest whether or not it was her level. By the age of 3, she had started stringing words together and by 3.5 years of age, she had begun her independent reading journey. At 6, she was reading Enid Blyton and by 8, she had read the entire Harry Potter series (whether or not it was suitable). Now she reads everything and anything and loves reading…..

T2, on the other hand, I almost never read to and hence the push to start making reading fun. At 3, she had absolutely zero interest in books. At 5, she is now just starting to string letters together through a lot of encouragement. I would be lying if I didn’t feel that a piece of my heart would be crushed if T2 never adopted the love of reading but never say never. I am certain that with some fun reading exercises as below, she will get there one day. Persistence and consistency in reading without force or it ever being a chore is key. Once the child has fun doing it, they will start to love it. Every child is different and will develop their individual reading pace at separate times. Even if your child cannot read at 12 or has no interest in books by then, there is still hope yet.

Just adopt the making reading fun approach and surely they will get there.

Heard in the Car series:

As most of my interaction with my kids happen in the car (so sad, right? But what to do, the moment we get home, everyone is busy with their own responsibilities), I have started documenting the Heard in the Car series:

15/4/15
T2: Mommy, do you know before Daddy took out the YOUTUBE from my iPad, I saw the Barbie Murder Home and it has everything inside.

My head was spinning. Did she stumble across a sinister version of Barbie? Damn, thank God I got the hubs to cancel out YOUTUBE in our home.

T1: She means Barbie MOBILE home, Mom….

It’s dangerous having mispronunciations from T2. She calls her Bahasa teacher Puan Juliana….Prawn Juneya, and her Science teacher, Mrs Chandra….Mrs Sangria. T1 says Prawn Juneya’s daughters must surely be called Shrimp and Krill respectively.

In amusement of T2 calling her Science Teacher Mrs Sangria, I repeatedly asked her who her Science teacher was just to hear her pronounce it over and over again. It is hilarious but then she suddenly states, “My Best Science teacher is Mommy!”

Just for the record, I never teach her any science per se but she relates to me telling her certain stories relating back to her science class such as when I ask her during her shower how she can keep herself healthy.

T1: Who?

T2: Mommy! Mommy is my best Science Teacher.

T1: Mommy doesn’t know Science.

*Mommy starts frowning*

T2: Of course she does! She’s my best Science teacher.

*Mommy wonders if Tia is trying to bring forward the early receipt of her birthday present for August*

T1: Mommy doesn’t know Science but oh, ya….anyone can be a Science teacher at Reception level so I guess she could be your Science Teacher….

Mommy: Excuse me? You might be interested to know that I studied Science at COLLEGE level, Biology, Physics and Chemistry to be exact!!

T1: Oh, you did? You mean you know Science? I thought only Daddy knew Science.

*WTF*

And just to test me, T1 then said she was learning ‘Forces’ for Science at school and do I know it?

Mommy: Oh, so you know what F=ma is?

T1: *confused look*   Oh, noooo….we don’t do formulas for Science. We only do formulas for Math.

Mommy – 1 : T1 – 0
